• Alien Vs. Ninja

    Feb 16, 2015

    For a change, ‘Alien Vs. Ninja’ is an amusingly titled, low budget action movie that actually lives up to expectations.

  • Android Cop

    Mar 16, 2015

    Perhaps movie fans will have fun trying to spot the influences, but beyond this it’s hard to see why it would be worthy of your time.

  • Armageddon

    Feb 18, 2015

    The lack of urgency and often confusing nature of the plot means ‘Armageddon’ is never as engaging or exciting as it could have been.

  • Assault Girls

    Feb 18, 2015

    Even though Oshii has an impressive eye for visuals, he really needs to invest more time into the overall package as this is sadly lacking in depth.

  • Avalon

    Feb 19, 2015

    Some may dismiss this merely as ‘The Matrix’ with opera. Others will agree it is an example of science fiction using its brain as well as its trigger finger.

  • Battle Royale

    Feb 21, 2015

    ‘Battle Royale’ is a fast paced, intense and emotionally charged film that goes where most filmmakers would never dare and produces a highly recommended movie for fans of all genres.

  • Battle Royale II

    Feb 21, 2015

    The core concept remains relatively fresh and the switch in style to more of a war-like epic works in the film’s favour.

  • Big Man Japan

    Feb 23, 2015

    ‘Big Man Japan’ isn’t always quite as quirky and clever as it thinks it is but is nevertheless another entertaining example of why Japanese cinema is at the forefront of the unique and creative.

  • Black Mask

    Feb 23, 2015

    The action is still impressive, and deserves 4 stars, but the direction, annoying camera work and lack of real plot drag it down into the 3 star category.

  • Black Mask 2: City Of Masks

    Feb 23, 2015

    ‘Black Mask 2’ could be seen as Hark’s interpretation of what appeals to a global audience or maybe he just watched one too many episodes of ‘Power Rangers’ before production began.

  • Blade II

    Feb 24, 2015

    Part 2 showed some nicer choreography but was hindered by the MTV-style camera work, which has seemingly infected all action films of the past few years.

  • Blue Remains

    Feb 25, 2015

    It’s commendable that the team behind ‘Blue Remains’ opted to try something different but unfortunately the technology at the time just wasn’t up to the task.

  • Bubble Fiction: Boom Or Bust

    Feb 27, 2015

    ‘Bubble Fiction: Boom Or Bust’ is a giddy cocktail of absurdism, social commentary and sci-fi adventure with the laughs eventually conquering everything.

  • Casshern

    Feb 28, 2015

    It’s certainly worth spending some time in even just for the fantastic visuals on offer but may also draw you into the melancholic characters and the sombre story right up to its tragic conclusion.

  • City Under Siege

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘City Under Siege’ plods along to something of an anti-climax after nearly two hours, never achieving logical pacing or suspense.

  • CJ7

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘CJ7’ is a warm-hearted sci-fi comedy with solid special effects and a winning performance by newcomer Xu Jiao.

  • CJ7: The Cartoon

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘CJ7: The Cartoon’ is a definite step down from the original, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t still a fun companion piece that can be enjoyed by all the family.

  • Dead Leaves

    Mar 5, 2015

    ‘Dead Leaves’ is a fantastic injection of animated insanity that will leave your brain absolutely buzzing.

  • Ditto

    Mar 8, 2015

    The Korean hit makes ample use of the fine chemistry between its two main stars and the inherent interest generated by such a workable premise.

  • Double Team

    Mar 8, 2015

    It’s not exactly the best Van Damme movie around, but ‘Double Team’ remains entertaining fluff thanks to a few entertaining action highlights.

  • Dragon Ball Z: Cooler’s Revenge

    Sep 25, 2017

    ‘Cooler’s Revenge’ is another entertaining if somewhat average ‘Dragon Ball Z’ movie that, much like most of the previous outings, is a film that is probably better suited to the existing fanbase.

  • Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug

    Jun 27, 2017

    Long-time fans of ‘Dragon Ball Z’ who can’t get enough of those crazy Kamehamehas will likely find plenty to appreciate here.

  • Dragonball: Evolution

    Mar 9, 2015

    Loud, day-glo and stuffed with ropey CGI madness, for many ‘Dragonball: Evolution’ will be the stuff of nightmares.

  • Drive

    Mar 9, 2015

    If you like martial arts movies and long to see an American outing that does it right for a change, then ‘Drive’ is definitely worthy of your time.
